The country is sensational!! Accommodation was basic; however, very clean. The best presented unit was in Wanaka Distinction alpine resourt where we had access to pool, spa, barbecue and many other complimentary things for comfort including dishwasher, washing machine. The weather was hot +28 and we would appreciate if units have air-conditioning inside but none of them had. The worst experience was with car hire through Thrifty cars. They’ve given us a heavily damaged car! We were told the car was damaged but driveable and they have already photographed all damages. I asked to see the photographs before signing in the car, the guy said he didn’t have them!!! How can you rent the car without inspecting a damage??? So I refused, I said that we would like to take our pictures before renting this car so the guy took us to the car which was like 5 minutes of walking in heat conditions. Guess what we counted 7 damages and deep grazes on car which weren’t even showed on their drawing!!!! So we took all pictures and the guy witnessed everything (he wasn’t happy you could tell)! We documented on their lease form and marked additional damages on their drawing. Having mentioned all this the provided GPS unit didn’t work neither so we had to use off line maps for most of our trip. I will never book with Thrifty cars again! As for Relaxing Journeys, the company is very good and helpful.
